Therizinosauroid apomorphies

Anyone have any good (read: demonstrable) apomorphies for Therizinosauroidea? The abbreviated metatarsals might be one, but I can't accept the downturned dentary. Most other characters seem homoplasious at best or characteristic of larger clades. It seems that the best character to support therizinosauroid monophyly is "fragmentary skeleton."

Thanks for any help in advance.
